Pharaoh’s Daughter — World View: A Benefit Concert
Presented By Temple Ahavat Achim, Gloucester
Blending a psychedelic sensibility and a pan-Mediterranean sensuality, Basya Schechter leads Pharaoh's Daughter through swirling Hasidic chants, Mizrachi and Sephardi folk-rock, and spiritual stylings filtered through percussion, flute, strings and electronica. The Village Voice has called the haunting, world music fusion sound of Pharaoh’s Daughter “The best Middle East Peace Plan.”
Basya Schechter’s musicianship has been described as “intricate and accessible,” with influences starting in Israel and ranging as far as India, Mali and Kurdistan. The multi-national group produces “a triumph of substance and style…… uncategorically awesome!”
Pharoah’s Daughter has been heard at Lincoln Center, on NPR, and throughout the United States and Europe. Schechter’s sound has been cultivated by her Hasidic music background and her travels throughout the Middle East and beyond. She is the recipient of numerous awards, and has recorded many albums.
